The Rev. Robert B. Houston solemnized wedding vows of Miss Carol Ann Sowieja and Clyde David Zahn, both of Milwaukee, during an afternoon nuptial rite at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Greenwood, March 15, 1975.

The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Sowieja, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), was presented in marriage by her father to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Zahn, Milwaukee. Music for the 3 o'clock ceremony was provided by Mrs. Rita Stewart, organist, and Mrs. Suzanne Johnson and Mrs. Mary Velton, vocalists.

As she approached the altar the bride was seen in a satin brocade and lace gown and a picture hat. She carried a satin covered bible and a bouquet of orchids and baby's breath.

She was preceded down the aisle by the bridal aides, Miss Debra Lueschen, Milwaukee, maid of honor, and Mrs. Gail ? of Milwaukee, Miss Darlene Fontaine, Plymouth, and Miss Kathy Zahn, Oshkosh, bridesmaids, attired in rainbow ensemble of crepe with print satin blouses and felt hats. Each carried a single long stemmed rose. Debra Eve, Waukesha, was miniature bride.
